Mystery solved . . .

If you visited yesterday, you saw a mysterious number I told you would disappear later today and that you should write the number down somewhere and keep it handy. If you did . . .
you have a coupon code for an additional 25% off any of the items in the Tumble Fish Studio shoppe at Deviant Scrap! That means, for some kits, a savings of 45% including these brand new kits . . . .

Jolie Papier Deux



Jolie Papier



Just look at this amazing piece Trudi of Two Dresses Studio made from these kits . . . .


copyright Trudi Sissons.

How to use the coupon . . .
Just type that mystery number in the space provided for a coupon when you checkout. It's good through this Saturday, August 13 Midnight only. It disappears altogether on the 14th. You can use it on ANY Tumble Fish Studio kits at DeviantScrap.com.

Remember, most of my kits come in either a png digital kit or in a printable jpg kit and almost all work out to less than $1.00 per sheet! (papers only kits do not come in collage sheet form)

But that's not all folks . . . .
Now, if you're not into the discount on images, never fear! I got you back here for yet another reason entirely! Keep reading . . . . You may have just seen her work in the new fall edition of Somerset's Artful Blogging, among many other publications she's been featured in. You may know her from flickr. You may know her from her blog. You may have taken a class from her or participate in her now famous Calendar Challenge. However you're familiar with her, you know she's one of the most talented journal and mixed media collage artists around. I am so very lucky that the hugely talented Kate Crane has taken a liking to my images over the last year and a half or so. What a thrill to see her work her magic with them!

If you haven't been to her blog, you need to make side trip over there . . . but don't forget to come back for the good part at the end of this post! You can get to Kate through the linked picture below . . . but come back . . . don't forget.



And here's some work of Kate's that uses Tumble Fish images . . .




all art work copyright by Kate Crane.

So, now that you've had a taste of Kate's talent I'm sure you'll agree you would probably love to own a set of her new Art Journaling DVD's that feature images from Tumble Fish Studio and another good friend, Nancy Baumiller of Crowabout among other designers. If you click on the pictures just above, you can see a snippet from the DVD's that just happens to use some of my images. Her calm lyrical voice will lure you into a relaxed beautiful approach to journaling, an approach that can be applied to all types of collage and mixed media work that takes you from the very start to a satisfying end. Truly this is THE best "How To" I've ever seen.



Would you like a set of Kate's DVDs? If you comment this post by August 20th, you'll be entered into a random drawing to win this beautiful DVD set. That's it, just post a comment!

Photocat said...

I have Kate her dvd's and they are awesome. Also had the luck of taking two classes with Kate, and what can I say? She rocks my art journaling world. On top of all that, she is very down to earth without artists attitude so it is a great lady to be with or around with. And yes, I found tumble Fish because Kate mentioned it!

I moved in June and I still have not found my artwork by you. Darn it! I am putting all of my favorite art pieces around my small art area to inspire me and you work always does that.
Hugs, Tammy
